It’s a great opportunity to be mentored by him and playing under him.”I think every young cricketer wants to play with him at least once, sharing the crease with him is something that goes a long way in helping you learn. I was lucky to have been able to play under him in this IPL.”Expressing his views on Kohli’s captaincy, the 25-year-old said: “I have been able to learn a lot of things from him, including his way of managing the team and keeping the entire team together. He is a great leader.”When quizzed about the special tips he received from South Africa superstar AB de Villiers, Dube said: “ABD always told me to keep a positive attitude in any situation and it has really helped solve my problems in tough situations. He’s a great team player and even as a senior, he always motivated me in practice as well as in the matches.”advertisementTalking on his performance in this season of the cash-rich league, Dube felt that despite giving his best, it didn’t work for his team and he will try to perform better in future.”I gave my 100 percent but unfortunately it wasn’t enough for our team as a whole. I know I have more to achieve and I can definitely do much better. I am confident I will get more chances in different formats of the game. My focus at the moment is doing my best for the Shivaji Park Lions in the upcoming Mumbai T20 League.”After playing in one of the most challenging T20 leagues in the world, Dube is all set to participate in Mumbai’s local T20 league and is looking to use the tournament as another platform to showcase his talent.”Shivaji Park Lions is my home since Mumbai is where I belong. Shivaji Park Lions has given me the perfect opportunity to showcase myself as a talented cricketer. Yes, I come with some experience, but that only helps enhance the overall performance of the team, rather than putting more pressure on me.”The whole team is full of talent and it is also a great learning experience. I just want to better my performance with every match I play for Shivaji Park Lions,” Dube said.With several T20 leagues evolving swiftly, he feels the tournaments will give youngsters another opportunity to showcase their talent.”It is a great move that cricket is being recognized at every level, there are so many of us who dream to play at a bigger level and such domestic matches give us encouragement and opportunity. I am happy that I am getting a chance to play in the league,” he said.Dube was adjudged Player of the Tournament last season after accumulating 213 runs from eight games and bagging 12 wickets.”The faith that Shivaji Park Lions have put in me by retaining me is a great gesture. I won’t let them down. Shivaji Park Lions are ready to roar louder this season. We may have missed the last one by a thread, but we as a team are confident of doing well this season,” he said.Also Read | Always great on paper: Vijay Mallya tweets on RCB’s poor IPL 2019 campaignAlso Read | RCB fan girl goes viral overnight.
